Artist Talk: Behind the Scenes with Ty Evans



From the benches of Barcelona to the streets of Shanghai, videographer Ty Evans (Fully Flared, Yeah Right!) travels the world with good friends filming skateboarding. Evans set the standard for the genre by combining the D.I.Y. spirit of skate culture with the precision of a Hollywood shoot. What appears to be a dream job at times is in reality a cumbersome tangle of irate security guards, difficult locations, looming deadlines, stolen equipment, and temperamental talent. Join Evans for a discussion about cinematography and skateboarding spiked with clips. Copresented by the Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council and Familia Skateshop.
